Writer in Costa Rica and communications specialist.

I empower leaders, businesses and organizations to achieve a bigger reach and a more powerful voice – whether that means developing a successful grant application or fundraising campaign, or changing the way they present themselves to the world.

I do this by leveraging my years of experience at the intersection between journalism and nonprofit leadership, using it to help my clients:

  • connect to new sources of funding;
  • express their mission more clearly;
  • share their success stories more broadly and effectively;
  • and build and strengthen their supporter base.

My services including communications coaching, grantwriting research and proposal development,  fundraising, website development, copywriting and editing, and Spanish-English translation. My years of managing teams and working under pressure mean I can deliver results quickly and thoroughly.

Katherine really took time to understand what our project was about and how we wanted to present ourselves, our business, and our brand. She outlined with us the goals of the site, then explored key concepts and words with us; from there, we were able to develop an elevator pitch and detailed descriptions. I liked Katherine’s professionalism, expertise and attention to the details. She wanted to make sure that the copy was just right – right for the site and right for our brand. We feel honoured we had the opportunity to engage and work with such a talented writer and editor.                                                                                                              Pip Kelly, Co-Owner, Casitas Tenorio B&B

Katherine worked hand-in-hand with me directing the Costa Rica Multilingüe Foundation. Her amazing ability to synthesize concepts and ideals with words was a key factor for the success we had with the program. Her work was invaluable in terms of establishing diverse public-private partnerships and for fundraising to achieve our goals. As the Director of Costa Rica Rica Multilingüe, I would not hesitate to recommend her work due to the extremely high quality of the results and her willingness and commitment to add value to any organization.  Marta Blanco, Co-Founder, Costa Rica Multilingüe Foundation

Katherine’s writing has the perfect dose of sensitivity and sense of humor. She has a marvelous capacity for beautifying and distilling what you want to communicate, and making it attractive for readers. She’s a linguistic artist – highly recommended!                          Melania Cubero, Founder, Unplug Costa Rica

Katherine is a passionate writer who can capture the feeling and mood of what she is writing about instantly. She cares about people and their projects and lives; she wants to understand where they are coming from and what they want to convey. She is quick, professional and a pleasure to work with. I really like how she understands culture and language here in Costa Rica. She is gifted and her writing will make you smile. We recommend her 100%.          Donald Varela, Founder, Tapir Valley Nature Reserve
